Advanced noise reduction systems

Objective

Today noise still belongs to the most concerned environmental pollutants. This is an essential societal problem, and-transportation is seen as the primary source. Accepting mobility as a basic human need and as an essential precondition for maintaining economic prosperity and wealth in an enlarging Europe, it is clear that the adverseeffects of noise must be reduced while facing a continued increase in freight and passenger transport. CALM II aims at the synchronisation and encouragement of European transport noise research through an holistic system approach involving all related research areas. It is designed to facilitate the networking of organisations, the co-ordination of activities and the exchange and dissemination of knowledge. CALM II will > optimise research efforts > identify synergies between noise research objectives > identify remaining research needs > check the actual state-of-the-art of noise abatement technologies and support their industrial implementation By involving the most relevant stakeholders from European and national activities from road, rail, aeronautic and maritime transport as well as complementary research issues such as health and socio-economic aspect, the European Noise Working Groups and the respective European Research Advisory Councils, CALM II will support the European Commission in setting up the agenda for future transport noise research and development. The outcome will be published in the form of "Community Noise Research Strategy Plans" and the CALM II Consortium will use all modes of modern communication, electronically as well as brochures, papers, presentations and discussions at events to disseminate the results and enhance the Coordination of European noise research. Altogether CALM II will essentially contribute to the vision for 2020 "to avoid harmful effects of noise from all sources and preserve quiet areas.
